Cannastuff is highly anti-flam. Lots of studies on that. I wonder if there's a study comparing it to the very potent nsaids you take? I'm probably mis-remembering but wasn't  celebrex was one they restricted some years ago for utter nastiness.


The sleep problems sound awful. I'd hope there are some strains that could fix that problem. Three puffs and the lights go out.

I ordered some CBD extract, going to see if it has any effect on osteoarthritis. My knees are shot and NSAIDs are hard on my stomach, and had to stop taking them when my stomach got worse.


I'm about as cynical as they come, but ready to try alternatives. So far the only stuff that's made a difference is prescription anti-inflammatories like Mobic (meloxicam), or celebrex (celecoxib). Problem is my stomach gets so upset taking those I end up puking. Over the counter stuff like Ibuprofen doesn't do anything except make my gut worse.


The other problem I have which this may help with (or not) is my sleep schedule has been pretty random since I had a motorcycle crash back in 2010. I took a massive head impact and my sleep pattern (day / night cycle) has randomly flipped ever since. 


I got oil on the way that was CO2 extracted, supposed to put a few drops under your tongue a few times a day. 


THC makes me paranoid as hell so not a lot of interest in that. But if CBD solves one or both problems? This time next year I"ll be rolling my own CBD hemp cigarettes. ;)



CBD does work for pain etc. but not as well as you would hope.

Pure CBD will kill pain but you may need 10 or more. No psychoactive effect.

Pure THC will kill pain almost immediately but you may only need 1 or less. Extreme psychoactive effect.

Mix the pure CBD with the pure THC and you may need three. Psychoactive effect but not until after you pass the point of pain relief.


Daytime puffs vs nighttime puffs. Is paranoia really a concern when it's sleepytime?

I'm very interested in your grow. I'm starting many more plants than usual but my purpose is to have around 100 plants ready to hit the ground running when transplanted into the hay bale garden mid-March.


I have three small areas to work with. The smallest has fluorescent. A slightly larger area has a 1000W LED with switches for bloom, veg and both. It uses very little electricity. Only 125 with the veg lights and around 180 with all lights running. The largest area has a 1200W LED on a light mover.

Our wet season is pretty well constant. We get 60-70 inches of rain per year. Probably well over 70" so far this year.


I'm becoming more confident this will work. The farmer who gave me this load of decomposing material told me he sells bales to a lady in the area who does bale gardens every year with amazing results. He sold her 700 bales last month for her next year garden.


I did get my 20,000 foot roll of twine a while back but haven't bound up my rows yet. I'm trying to rehab my way out of a double tap of elbow tendonitis. Never had anything like this before and it ain't fun. Maybe next week I'l start with unitizing the rows.

This stuff was a beast to unload with a fork but the gooey, stringy yuck piled nice and tall. Ready to rot.
